The Walk Of Shame


Say hello to my new clock. The clock that had a small knob on the side of it...that I snapped off before my brain could stop my fingers from twisting it to see if it worked. Of course it didn't work! It was a decoration on a plastic clock!

So I did the walk of shame to the front of Memory Lane and purchased it.

Fortunately, I have been eyeing it for several weeks and for $6, breaking it just sort of prodded me along. It's going to get glittered as a Christmas piece! (Or Halloween??)

Have you made the walk of shame after breaking something?

Enjoy your day,
Sonya

I've dropped a glass jar of something in the store (pickles, i think) and told the clerk to ring them up for me, but they refused.

another time, i got home from JCPenney's with a blouse the clerk had not rung up. it was too late to go back that night, but i went back the next day and paid for it. the clerk, and her manager, were floored. first of all, the clerk couldn't wrap her brain around what i was telling her (that the clerk the night before had missed one blouse and that i needed to pay for it) and had to call for a manager to assist her. the manager had a hard time with it, too. what... have they not seen honesty before?

That must've been something to see...I bet it felt surreal! I have broken many things before and always buy them ( or offer to). Bath and body cringes when thhy see me coming, I am sure:)
But if I didn't I know it would keep me up at night!

Nice clock.. can't wait to see it all glittery & fun...
I once knocked over a diplay of wine... Talk about a mess!! I took 2 bottles & the whole thing toppled. I offered to pay & they would not let me... needless to say, I needed the wine when I got home.. : )
And they are still talking about it at the store.. : )

LOL! Nope, though, like the others, I have had some interesting reactions when paying up an error in my favor. What made me laugh was the first thought that came into my mind. "Oooo, what a neat mini house that could be... or shadowbox...or...!"

Oh yes! A clown fell off the shelf (or as I like to think of it, jumped off the shelf in attack mode) and its head shattered. I asked the clerk at the Goodwill where the monetary donation box was. They didn't have one out, so insisted he put the $4 for the busted clown in his register. He was confused, but I assured him if I didn't right the wrong I would forever have bad thrift karma!

Ironically enough, a few weeks later I mysteriously suffered an inexplicable hairline fracture in my foot. Revenge of the clown!
